Event description

Description

Unearth and share the stories woven into the photographs, artworks, ephemera, objects, memorabilia and recordings held in your collection.

This two-day, practical workshop provides an introduction to using your collection to share the culture and history of your community. Participants will learn how to identify and record significant stories, digitally capture their important items and combine these two things to attract local visitors and engage audiences online.

The course will cover:

  • Managing your collection information
  • Practical digitisation
  • Identifying significant stories
  • Audience mapping and engagement
  • Sharing your collection online.



These workshops offer an open environment for learning with an emphasis on sharing skills and building local networks. We cater for participants with any kind of collection, of any skill level, as well as providing ongoing support for all participants.

The workshop is an opportunity for anybody working or volunteering in:

  • Galleries
  • Libraries
  • Archives, including churches and schools
  • Historical Societies
  • Historic properties with household collections
  • Museums
  • Community and sporting groups with memorabilia or collections
  • Organisations with a company archive or collection.

Morning and afternoon tea and lunch are provided. Please advise of any dietary requirements when booking.

Presented by Museums Galleries Australia WA, in partnership with the Western Australian Museum and Tourism WA. Open the Doors is a subsidised workshop as part of a state-wide initiative to raise the visibility of regional collections with further workshops planned for other parts of WA.

Bookings close 15 February - so register today!
